'Devil' Man in Staten Island Lights Poop-Covered Door on Fire
Charred door + poop (Staten Island Advance/John Annese)
Okay, this is absurd because one of the following attacks would get the point across just fine: A Staten Island man by the name of Rasheen (Illuminati) Harrison (?) stripped naked, rubbed poop on the door of his pregnant ex-girlfriend's apartment, and then lit his clothes and the door on fire, all at 5:30 a.m. "I'm going to set your house on fire and this whole building down with you in it," he said, plus curse words. "I'm the devil!" he screamed, according to neighbors. "Yeah, I did it," he told police. "She stole my cell phone. I had a yellow lighter. I set it on fire." There was no question he did it -- his hands were covered in shit.
All the while, the woman, six months' pregnant with Harrison's child, was inside with two young kids, as well as two other people who were trapped, too. It wasn't the smell that kept them in, but the scalding-hot door knob. Finally, a neighbor called the cops.
Charges against Harrison include second-degree arson, third- and fourth-degree criminal mischief, five counts of second-degree reckless endangerment, five counts of third-degree menacing and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Not sure where the poop comes in -- menacing doesn't begin to describe it.
